Xenoblade Chronicles X - details on battle, OC Gear and Twilluminous Forest

Turning the Tides of battle

How do you gain the upper hand in battle?

Things like the order and timing of your arts usage, and your relative position can have a huge impact on the flow of a battle. Your fights will go far smoother if you make use of the techniques described below.

Combo Attacks

There are arts with descriptions like “Increases damage if used following a Melee Art” or “Increases damage if used following a Ranged Art,” which make it possible to achieve greater effects than normal through combinations. Link arts together skillfully, and you’ll increase the damage you do to enemies.


Certain arts inflict the “Break” status effect on enemies. If you use an art with the “Topple” effect while they’re suffering from “Break,” you can prevent them from moving for a short time. Your attacks will never miss, and all damage is increased by 1.5 times while they are suffering from Topple, so you should strive to make use of it. There are also arts that inflict more damage while an enemy is Toppled. *If you don’t Break them first, enemies will not Topple.

Attack from Blind Spots

Attacking an enemy from behind, or from above or below, increases your accuracy and critical hit rates. There are arts that have special effects when used from the side or back too, so it’s important to position yourself well while fighting.

Breaking Parts

You’re able to change your target between the different parts of an enemy. If you destroy a part, the enemy will be unable to use it to attack, so it’s advantageous to destroy them quickly. You also receive extra rewards after battle for destroying them.

OC Gear

Turn the Tables with a Single Move

After progressing through the story to a certain point, you gain the ability to use the “OverClock Gear,” a powerful technique that drains 3000 TP to give you massively improved battle capabilities for a short time. While invoked, your arts’ Recast time(the time it takes for them to become usable again) are drastically reduced, allowing you to dish them out one after the other. Unique to the OC Gear are “Triple Recasts,” which allow your arts to charge up for a third time. If you’re having trouble against a boss or Overed, you can prepare for them by gathering the 3000TP beforehand, as the TP you’ve accumulated carries over between fights.

Gear Counter: Changes color depending on the arts used.

Gear Time: A meter that slowly decreases. The OC Gear ends when it empties.

OC Gear Usage Details

Count Effects: Following arts with other arts of the same color will increase the number of hits on the “Gear Counter.” You’ll get effects like “Gear Time Extension,” “Extra Damage,” and “Gain TP While Attacking” depending on your Count number.

Color Combo: If you change the “Gear Counter” color in a certain order(e.g. yellow→green), you’ll get effects like “Double Count Number,” “Increase Part Damage,” “Recover HP,” and “EXP Bonus.”

Party Chain: If your allies gather 3000 TP while your Gear is invoked, they can activate their own OC Gear. You’ll get special effects for having multiple people use it simultaneously.

Re-Invoke: If you accumulate another 3000 TP while using your Gear, you can re-invoke it to extend your Gear Time.
